Writer Abroad learned a lesson yesterday: even though the pool in her little Swiss village is open for the season, it does not mean its water temperature is swimmable for young Americans even though it appears fine for elderly Swiss people.
Anyhow. Without further digression, here’s the latest international writing round up:
Writer Abroad-featured author Philip Graham writes about how reading is inner travel over on The Millions. And he also manages to make Writer Abroad nostalgic for those tissue paper Scholastic book order forms. Ooh, she can hear their crinkle now.
If you don’t already follow the blog, Practicing Writing, check out Erika Dreifus’ latest handpicked writing opportunities. She posts them every Monday.
Why is getting published so darn difficult? Erika Liodice has some interesting statistics over at Beyond the Gray. (Not for the faint at heart).
And in final news, Writer Abroad is going to live the cliché. She is going to write in Paris. Oui. Writer Abroad will be attending the Paris Writers Workshop. She hopes to meet some of you there. If you’re attending or live in Paris, please get in touch. Writer Abroad looks forward to connecting at an address other than www.
Until next time, Auf Wiedersehen. Note: don’t say that in Switzerland. Unless you want people to think you’re a foreigner. Writer Abroad doesn’t but she’s giving herself away right and left. Not to mention, everyone is staring at her jean shorts. It is weird.
